Subtitled Los majos enamorados (The Gallants in Love), the 1911 piano suite Goyescas was inspired by the paintings of Francisco Goya and is considered Granados's crowning creation. It is coupled here with the well-drawn miniatures of Danzas Espanolas and the Schumannesque cycle Escenas Románticas.

"Heisser plays with ample amounts of panache, Spanish flair, and bravura. His technique is quite clear and transparent, definitely a necessity for these works…. Perhaps the pinnacle achievement of this set is 'Quejas, o La maja y el ruisenor' from Goyescas … coupling the sensual and romantic with the occasional piquant ornamentation. The character-filled Danzas Espanolas are equally fiery and captivating."—All Music Guide

"Jean-Francois Heisser, where have you been all our lives? The 50-year-old French pianist has been big for years outside the United States but has not penetrated - or cared to penetrate - the U.S. classical concert scene. We've been the worse for his absence…. Heisser's primary gift to the listener is the elasticity of his musical line."—Minneapolis Star Tribune
